Tyre Safety Month 2019

This year TyreSafe's campaign, 'Look Who's Talking' focuses on raising awareness around the three main areas of tyre maintenance; Air Pressure, Condition and Tread Depth (ACT). Protyre are big supporters of the 'Look Who's Talking' campaign as it encourages motorists to check their tyres, at least once a month - something we hope becomes more of a routine, rather than just a one-off.



Below are details of the checks drivers should make once a month and before long journeys:

  • Air Pressure: Check your vehicle owner's handbook, or inside of the fuel filler cap, for the manufacturer's recommended tyre pressure. Use an accurate tyre pressure gauge to check your tyres are inflated to the correct level.
  • Condition: Tyre condition is incredibly important for the safety of you and your passengers. Lumps or bulges, indicate internal damage to the tyre which, if ignored, could result in a catastrophic failure. If you spot any signs of lumps, bumps, cuts or cracks, then take your vehicle down to your local Protyre garage and let our experienced, trustworthy technicians offer sound, professional advice on whether your tyres need replacing. 
  • Tread Depth: Ideally, your vehicle's tyre tread depth should be checked with an accurate gauge to ensure it is over above the legal limit of 1.6mm. However, if you don' t have a gauge, a 20p coin will suffice. Simply insert the 20p into the grooves of the tyre tread, at multiple points, across the surface of the tyre. If you can see any part of the outer band on the coin face, it means the tyre tread is too shallow – and therefore, illegal. It’s not just time to think about replacing your tyres, it’s essential you do so immediately.

Understanding the EU tyre label

The Tyre Label is a mark for motor vehicle tyres. Manufacturers of tyres for cars, light and heavy trucks must specify fuel consumption, wet grip and noise classification of every tyre sold in EU markets starting in November 2012

Noise level rating

This is a measurement in decibels(dB) of the noise created between the tyre and the road. It is represented by 3 bars with a single bar being the lowest level of noise.

Fuel efficiency rating

Rolling resistance is used to measure how fuel efficient a tyre is. The less resistant a tyre is the less fuel it will use to move the vehicle.

A is for the highest performing tyres
G is the least performing

Fuel efficiency rating

The basis for wet grip is the absolute stopping distance when driving 80 km per hour. Between each class, there are 3–6 metres difference in braking distance. Classes "D" and "G" are not used for passenger cars.
